thanks all for the kind words. I think everyone should have one. my husband informed me tonight that this bag is his favorite (after going through my collection and deeming them all "boring").

Go for it - if you don't you will regret it immediately.

I agree with Cougess

Your green one is gorgeous & is different enough from the black to justify having both!

actually, the bag available is the new one with black enameled GGs and it is current so most Gucci boutiques should have it. here's a pic:



it's $940. they also have a hobo in the same style in a small and medium (don't know the price). as for me, it doesn't rock my world. all the better since I'm way over my handbag budget for the next 5 years.

a little OT, I was surprised to learn that this bag is the hot bag right now -- they sold out immediately and no one has it:



pic is from neiman's which is sold out too. the strap is cute but otherwise I find it blah. which shows what I know.:p

^Lilygirl, thanks for the posting the pics especially the one with the black enameled GGs! I'm a little disappointed, there is no *Wow* factor for me either. I liked Alejandro's bag but I didn't like Paris Hilton's...okay I'm biased, I just can't stand her in general.

Ok I know what you mean you don't like her but not her bag ...ha...ha... me too

I perfer the Boston shape though...but you already have it in green so I guess this one would be a good purchase as well.

Wow, I was surprised but how similiar in shape the Blondie is to the Chanel cerf and the picture by LilyGirl really highlighted it.

The only difference is of course, the enameled double Gs versus the interlinking double Cs.

I feel that the Boston shape is more unique. I like it a lot more

I like Alejandro's bag better than this new one. The all-gold hardware looks better. Without it, it looks like a bag for an old lady.

I was shocked to see the large black original Boston (with the gold GGs) on the Bergdorf's site.
